Exterior scenesLibrary arbaaro, ModelingTrees, grass. I think i will go with NGplant. For the rocks and grass the recipes were rather straight. So for Arbaro seems better to just leave the generated leaf shape alone, from a distance it looks well but in closeups less so. For small light trees they might work in the scene directly. I added the ngp file at the end of the post — not sure if exactly the same from the image as I had several tests on my computer, but a close one anyway, enjoy!
Until now I have used cut trees with alpha channel, mapped on planes. Back to my tree, arharo is a ngplant screenshot and some highlighted settings:.

Arbaro and Ngplant comparison By voanav. Rather unexpectedly I ended up using Ngplant for creating my first tree instead of Arbaro as recommended in the tutorial. Any change of sharing tuhorial ngp file?
Sometimes a bit of postprocessing helps but then you feel tempted to put the trees directly in Gimp and stop bothering about having them in Blender. Please use the comment section and help me if I missed some useful point!
Tree created in Ngplant. Hey thanks for a great article. Hi, Thanks for the interesting comparison of the free plant generator.
Blender has an import feature now called Image to planes that make inserting trees this way very easy. I only fiddled for a couple of days with the applications. The above points might not be that accurate and complete.

I found this tuorial major setback — after I got some leafless trees and some branches weirdly curving into the ground. Then to get tutoril certain result you must fiddle for ages with the settings….

Branches can be scaled and twisted more easily. The tree week in Nature Academy is arharo bit different. Thanks for the interesting comparison of the free plant generator.
Mixing different quality of photo trees in one render can give the game away, also having the plane at a wrong angle to the camera or reflected at a wrong angle into windows.
Both applications are very good and they do make trees. It is one of the things that moves an architectural rendering from ok to professional. So there is reason to try 3d trees.
I managed to follow the tutorial, but straying from its exact settings to get a personal image seems more difficult than with the first ones. I mean any settings you apply it is bound to look more or less like a tree. As always an interesting reading.
